This special treat combines two local specialties from Kyushu: satsumaimo (sweet potato) from southern Kyushu and Yamauchi Honten’s own “Maboroshi Miso”. The sweet potatoes are fried with their skin on until crispy and then baked with a mix of butter, sugar and maboroshi miso which adds a rich, umami sweetness.

Yamauchi Honten began making their miso and soy sauce over 270 years ago in 1751. In 1999, in an effort to preserve the local groundwater, they installed a rainwater infiltration basin and in 2009 became the first small and medium-sized enterprise to reach an agreement with the Council for Promotion of Water Recycling Farming to recycle groundwater in the Kumamoto region. These efforts are expected to replenish ~120,000 tons of groundwater annually.

Suggested uses: Enjoy as is (please note the candy is quite hard so take care when chewing). Pairs well with any of the teas from our Japanese Green and Specialty Teas: “Ryu” Care Package.
